She wins against girls a foot taller.
Mississippi State’s Morgan William, right, celebrates with Breanna Richardson
“Friday night in the national (basketball) semifinals, the 5-5 (yeah, right) William went for winning shots twice against UConn’s Gabby Williams, who is 5-11 but has amazing hops. The first one, at the end of regulation, Williams blocked. The second one, at the end of overtime, soared over her fingertips as the clock was winding down to zero.
That one swished, and once again, Morgan William had stolen the show at the women’s NCAA tournament, leading Mississippi State past top-ranked UConn 66-64.”
After the game, the coach picked her up and kissed her.
UConn had not lost a game in the last 111, beat MSU in last year’s tournament by 60 points.
